Curated by Judy Gaudet

This is how I connect to you

all lissom-like the elm trees bend
seawind lifts and scents my hair

my tongue flattens, no a, e, i, or u
to round to words, to keep earth-bound

I soar blue-black, wings wide
take pleasure in the lemon-streaked sky

there are shapes in evening’s clouds
cat morphs into wolf, dog-bear, whale

a moment comes and passes, a word
bitter-sweet – and twilight is here

we sigh sing-song under the bright weight
of moon, the graceful pines, and the sea

—Yvette Doucette, from In A Burst of Yellow Blossoms, Saturday Morning Chapbooks, 2014

Island poet and avid poetry reader Judy Gaudet selects a poem by a PEI poet each month.
